Platform Stealth and Evaluation Services


We support the successful introduction of new and refitted ships and submarines into service, providing an understanding of their signature through the procurement, acquisition and acceptance process.

Through bespoke evaluation trials we measure and assess stealth and weapons system performance, answering the question: is the platform ready for operations?

If performance fails to meet the requirements contracted for, we recommend and apply stealth improvement techniques. This early identification and correction of defects accelerates the procurement process, and reduces risk and cost through life of ownership.

Trials are run at our UK-based signature measurement facilities, or using transportable ranges that test platforms in-situ.
